Tomorrow, the 13th of April, the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) will hold a webinar to share emerging lessons from Latin America and the Caribbean regarding the first call for applications to the Adaptation Fund Climate Innovation Accelerator (AFCIA) programme.

AFCIACTCN and UNEP have received USD 5 million to foster innovation in adaptation with the plan to implement 25 technical assistance projects (up to USD 250,000 each) by 2025, enhancing climate resilience and adaptation efforts in developing countries. The programme also supports knowledge sharing to strengthen cooperation in the Global South and globally for greater climate action.

The webinar for Latin America and the Caribbean will include an overview the programme’s implementation and a short reflection on lessons emerging from the region’s responses to the first round of calls.

Additionally, there will be short presentations on FAO initiatives, Nature-based Solutions for infrastructure, and innovation for climate adaptation in the region. This last one will be provided by UNEP’s Programme Officer and CityAdapt’s regional coordinator, Marta Moneo. A panel discussion and Q&A session will follow the presentations.
